them. drastic situations. so as we do our work here in washington, we need to make certain that on this house floor there is advocacy for the response to these given situations. you know, already the price tags coming forth from the leadership back home. governo cuomo, for instance, suggesting the price is now -- the impact is now steadily risen, and, you know, at first snapshot you can't begin to comprehend all the damage and all the aspects and dynamics of recovery that would be required. now we're looking at something $30 billion that impacts a state in a very severe way. disrupts service. electric power that's disrupted. commerce that's frozen in place. human misery that's incalculable. where lives have been impacted forever by the forces of sandy. you know, this is a revisitation, so to spook, as we're -- speak, as we're still recovering. there was a fight on this floor that disaster aid moneys were brought into place so that we could respond with compassion and with dignity and integrity to these given situations. so the lessons here are to go forth as we deal with th
